A Comparative Study Using API RP2A-LRFD – OnePetro

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Since it was first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms. The reliability api rp 2a lrfd the Goodwyn ‘A’ substructure has been a major focus of the design and results are presented showing the platform reserve capacity, computed using non-linear inelastic ductility analyses.

The work is confined to the in-place strength of the jacket and module support frame MSF. Although fundamental differences exist between the 22a and LRFD versions, the two documents remain remarkably similar with the LRFD draft containing most of the carefully api rp 2a lrfd clauses which are familiar to many practicing engineers.

The designation ‘load resistance factor design’ derives from the concept of factoring both loads and resistances as opposed to the working stress design approach where only the resistance is divided by a factor of safety.
